From ‘Bond’ to ‘Mulan’: All the Hollywood Movies Delayed Due to Coronavirus


As concerns about the coronavirus continue to upend the entertainment industry, every major studio has pushed the U.S. releases of its films that were due out in the coming months.

The 25th installment in the James Bond franchise, No Time to Die, was the first title to announce a major release push, with every major upcoming studio tentpole — Disney’s Mulan, Universal’s Fast 9 and Marvel’s Black Widow — now following suit.

Major U.S. cities and moviegoing markets across the globe began to roll out protective measures prohibiting gatherings that exceeded anywhere from 50 to 250 persons. Subsequently, AMC theaters are closed across the country for 12 weeks, Regal Theaters announced an indefinite closure of its theaters and other smaller chains like Alamo Drafthouse and Cinemark have announced their own closures.
